All Star Players

The all-star Great Falls, MT, Post Office teamed up with its popular local Pioneer League baseball team, the Voyagers, in a winning stamp event.

In a night game at the ballpark, Postmaster Dave Chiavaras dressed up in this old-time baseball uniform, similar to the one on the "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" stamp, and threw out the first pitch.

The line-up included a special baseball postal station at the ball park that sold plenty of stamps and merchandise, besides offering a souvenir baseball postmark. They also held drawing and presented a beautiful framed picture of the stamp, autographed by the Voyager team, to a special fan.

What could be better? A fun enjoyable family night, good postal publicity, and raising revenue.
